The supernatural drama, which aired from 1997-2003, followed high schooler Buffy Summers, as she slayed vampires with help from friends Willow Rosenberg (Hannigan) and Xander Harris (Nicholas Brendon). As if being a teenager wasn't already complicated enough, Summers falls in love with a kind-hearted vampire, Angel.

"It's the ultimate metaphor: horrors of adolescence manifesting through these actual monsters," Gellar told the magazine. "It's the hardest time of life."

Boreanaz agreed, reflecting on how Buffy's characters and storylines connected with fans well beyond the seven seasons that the show aired.

"When you're going through a really horrible part of your life, like your teenage years, you feel alone," he said. "And Buffy was a way to tell the audience you’re not alone."

Hannigan, who went on to star in How I Met Your Mother, called Buffy the "role of a lifetime."

"I met the love of my life," the mother-of-two shared of her now-husband, Alexis Denisof, who played Watcher Wesley on the show. "And just to get to go to work every day and have Joss sort of train me — I’ll never have a better experience than that."
